This is a general discussion of the phonology of English within the
frameworks of lexical, metrical, and prosodic phonology. It not only
presents a synthesis of current approaches but also reconciles their
discrepancies and presents critical commentary. There is a discussion of
current theories, segment and syllable structure, stress, and prosodic
categories and their role in determining the application of segmental
rules. Two chapters discuss lexical phonology as divided into a cyclic
and a postcyclic stratum, while the final chapter discusses postlexical
phonology and some other approaches.
The book includes exercises and can be used as an undergraduate or
graduate textbook; at the same time, it is a valuable research tool for

These two monographs by one of the most distinguished phoneticians of
the first half of this century, Giulio Panconcelli-Calzia (1878-1966),
are still today the most comprehensive accounts of the three-thousand
year history of the study of sound by humans. An introduction in English
on the history * and historiography * of phonetics by the editor
provides the setting for not only the reprint of Panconcelli-Calzia's
work, but also for the ongoing research and scholarship in the field. A
16-page bibliography covers phonetic history writing over a period of
more than one hundred years.
